Rounding out the Top 5 was some Dude Y’all call The Iceman, nee Scott Dixon, but how ‘bout that KV Racing Technology squad, with EJ “What, Me Worry?” Viso leading new boy Takuma Sato in an impressive sweep of P6-7, while ‘TK, (Tony Kanaan) Dario Franchitti and Heideki Mutoh rounded out the Top 10 respectively. Twenty Drivers participated, with You-know-Who… ACK! Danica Patrick leading a trio of Femme Fatales home in P18, with rookie Simona De Silvestro and Sarah Fisher following Princess on the Time sheets…

Meanwhile the day’s other debutant drivers, Rookie Mario Romancini finished in 12th, With James Rossiter nipping at his heels in 13th, as Rossiter and De Silvestro are just testing currently, with no Race Drives announced as of yet.
